Ready for Halloween a little early

Gosh, I can't believe I haven't blogged in 25 days.  Just building the suspense for Halloween, I guess.  After Christmas, this is probably my favorite holiday.

Animals are so much funnier in costumes than humans. The fact that they trust me and let me make them look adorable makes it that much more special.  This year it was harder coming  up with ideas.  Also, I didn't get any cow or pig photos, which was disappointing.  I did, however, get some cute pictures of Baxter.  Of all the animals, he's the perfect mannequin.  If I needed to try out a costume I put it on him first because he stood very still until I got things just right and took a picture.   Here we have Ladybug Baxter.
And loofah Baxter
Rex was also a pretty good sport.  I don't know what he is, but he sure looks happy.
The donkeys are just happy for attention no matter what I do to them.  Willo looks very sophisticated in cap and gown, doesn't she?
As long as there was food to eat the goats were fine with letting me strap this or that on.  Mrs. Butterworth couldn't decide on the angel or ladybug costume so I let her pose in both.

I think Luti rocked the loofah and shower cap.
But mine was more colorful.
 And I'm much more of a showoff.
No costume for Cooper this year but a little buck shaming seemed appropriate for him.
Not to be left out, even one of the chickens was in the Halloween spirit.  She asked for a little candy corn but it was way past her bedtime and she'd already brushed her beak so no candy for her.
I'm not sure what to think of this last character.

I have so many favorite pictures of him I didn't know which ones to post.
Happy Halloween, everyone.

Raisa chose to have her baby during the threat of hurricane Joaquin.  Luckily we didn't get as much rain as was predicted and no heavy winds.  Lennon was born Oct. 2nd and hasn't seen a dry day yet.  Maybe tomorrow he'll discover what sunshine is.  He's a real sweetie and so far loves being scratched and cuddled.  Raisa doesn't mind me snuggling with him but she's not at all happy about Keri and Rex getting too close.  Today she seemed less nervous with them around.  Papa is pretty protective of him too.  After I laid on the ground with him for 10 minutes Papa came over to sniff him and tell him to get up and go to mom, which Lennon did.

I was kind of hoping for a girl but another boy is ok.  One year we'll get a heifer.
